In honor of the free Little Dragon concert I attended on Friday night at Prospect Park, I’d like to share with you mighty EMPT listeners this track. I heard this remix a couple of weeks ago from a friend, and have been mildly (that’s really putting it lightly) obsessed for a while now. Little Man is one of my favorite songs by the band, besides Twice, and I almost cried when they played it last night.
I tend to turn to Little Dragon when it comes to anything mildly difficult in my life. Yukimi Nagano has a way of soothing my soul, while encouraging me to conquer my fears of searching within. There’s definitely something to be said about their fluid movement, which caters to many jazz elements. In concert, songs went from one to the other so smoothly. I described it to my friend as if we were seeing a live DJ act whose music production was done all on stage (instruments and all) because they were using transitions from song to song as if it were no big deal. They took every opportunity they had to jam together, that at one point it almost felt like they were just playing because they were having fun. (With an audience in mind.)
As you can probably tell, I could go on and on about Little Dragon for days, but I would rather get you guys amped up for this track. It’s a gorgeous Sunday here in Brooklyn, and I think this is the perfect track for your day. Kick back and enjoy.
